Green Zone

Director: Paul Greengrass

Writer: Brian Helgeland, Rajiv Chandrasekaran

Starring: Matt Damon, Jason Isaacs and Greg Kinnear

Review By: Scotty

I caught this film this afternoon and was pleasantly surprised.  This is an action movie from start to finish that revolves around a rogue soldier and a covert operation which started the war in Iraq.  A war between Washington D.C and the C.I.A. keeps you on your toes as the characters try to unveil the true source of the WMD Intel.

The movie is shot like a documentary and at times is a little tough to handle but gives you an overall feeling of panic and chaos, which I believe is what the director intended.  Damon plays his role well as usual but nothing out of the ordinary or extraordinary I should say.  I did think Greg Kinnear as a Washington expletive was a new angle for him and he surprisingly made me dislike his character in this movie.

The story and action kept me interested and I enjoyed the relationship between Damon and his interpreter.  The movie is not great by any means but it certainly was entertaining and not a bad way to spend a couple hours.  This movie was not shot in Iraq but you could have fooled me, it felt like Iraq.
